- Binding: Paperback
- Author: Linda S. Kauffman
Kauffman looks at a neglected genre--the love letter written by literary heroines. Tracing the development of the genre from Ovid to the twentieth-century novel, she explores the important implications of these amatory discourses for an understanding of fictive representation in general.
